East Coast Destroyer Squadron CO Removed from Command

Recommended Posts

The commander of an East Coast destroyer squadron that recently returned from an extended deployment aboard USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN-78) was removed from his position on Saturday. Capt. William “Mac” Harkin was removed from command of Norfolk, Va., based Destroyer Squadron 2, by the commander of Carrier Strike Group 12 Rear Adm. Erick Eslich, “due to a loss of confidence in Capt. Harkin’s ability to perform his duties,” reads a Navy statement.
